Factor XIII

About this test

Factor XIII is a protein needed for forming stable fibrin clots and for wounds to heal.

Factor XIII stabilises blood clots by cross-linking the web of fibrin molecules.

Without factor XIII, a fibrin clot forms normally but soon breaks down and bleeding starts again. This cycle of clot formation and bleeding may be repeated for weeks and months. As a result, unusual scars can form.

Factor XIII deficiency means you have less than the normal amount of factor XIII in your blood. Factor XIII is also known as fibrin stabilisation factor.

Factor XIII Deficiency is also known as:

  • Fibrin Stabilizing Factor Deficiency
  • Fibrinase Deficiency
  • Fibrinoligase Deficiency
  • Laki-Lorand Factor Deficiency
  • Plasma Transglutaminase Deficiency
